Piano and friends: festive chamber music

By Finghin Collins, Cédric Tiberghien, Ruysdael Kwartet

What better way to start your Sunday than with some festive chamber music? There is plenty of chamber music with an important role for the piano. Irish pianist Finghin Collins and his good friend Cédric Tiberghien are playing Brahms’ Hungarian Dances. If you have trouble getting out of bed, these rivetting four-handed dances should wake you up. 

Together with the inimitable Ruysdael Kwartet, Collins is playing Dvořák’s Piano Quintet in A major. This is a delicious chamber music highlight and one of the masterpieces for this formation: a piano with string quartet. Everybody wants to be friends with the piano!
